Vol. 62, No. 7 


Friday, January 12, 1951 


By Mackey W. HiU 

World affairs are important. 
This is being recognized on every 
hand. Our national leaders con- 
sider the character of our foreign 
policy to be of primary import- 
ance. What should be our foreign 
policy at this time? is a question 
that several American leaders 
have recently endeavored to an- 
swer. Outstanding among these 
has been the following: Robert 
Taft, Thomas Dewey, John Foster 
Dulles, Herbert Hoover, Dean 
Acheson, and Harry Truman. Our 
national and domestic interests 
are so involved in our world rela- 
tions that President Truman's 
State of the Union address to the 
82nd Congress (in joint-session) 
Monday was termed by some, Tru- 
man's "State of the World Ad- 

The United States has come to 
occupy an important role, so Im- 
portant in fact, that the point of 
view advocated by any of the top 
level American leaders in Wash- 
ington is followed with great in- 
terest both by our enemies and 
our friends abroad. We can hope 
that all our leaders will give care 
to the formulation of their point of 
view on American policy and give 
expression to it in such a respon- 
sible way that both the long range 
interest of our country and the 
world will be served. Two other 
men have not clearly declared 
themselves. They are Stassen and 
Eisenhower. Stassen returned this 
week from a round the world 
jaunt to gain a first hand impres- 
sion much as he could and form- 
ulate theron his proposals. Eisen- 
hower is under appointment to com- 
mand the military forces of the 
members of the North Atlantic 
Pact and is now in the process of 
appraising the European situation. 
He wil report fully to President 
Truman and perhaps will express 
his proposals relative to our policy 

. One point of view that should be 
included in our consideration of 
how to stop the world-wide Com- 
munist threat is that proposed by 
U. S. Supreme Court Justice Doug- 
las in an article in this week's 
Look Magazine. He says that the 
western world could win over cer- 
tain national states through a 
strategy for which the Military are 
not prepared. It is more a politi- 
cal function than he advocates. 
This is a political sanction of 
movements towards reform and 
human betterment within these 
respective states rather than fol- 
lowing a policy of supporting those 
in power simply because they pro- 
fess to oppose communism. Thus 
by frustrating the legitimate inter- 
nal movements towards better 
schools, better health services, etc., 
we have by default forced people 
into the hands of the communists. 

As to the situation in Korea, 
the UN forces continue to with- 
draw to the south under pressure 
of the advancing Communist 
forces made up of strong Chinese 
contingents of "volunteers". Re- 
cently, a cloak of censorship has 
been draped over the Korean sit- 
uation. This followed the state- 
ment !n the British and Turkish 
newspapers that the UN forces 
were not beset with so great a 
numerical superiority as the Far 
Eastern Command had reported 
and would have us believe. What- 
ever the exact condition of the 
Korean affairs may be, it is ob- 
vious that the further the Com- 
munist forces drive southward 
the more extended does their sup- 
ply line become. 

Drive to Booster Living Endowment Fund Begun for College; 
Churches to Be Given Chance to Assist in Present Effort 

Intensively campaigning in be- 
half of the living endowment fund 
for George Fox college, Walter 
Lee, assistant to the president, and 
President Paul Parker, have re- 
cently compiled in pamphlet form 
the financial status of the college, 

In order 'that the churches 
throughout the yearly meeting 
might have opportunity to ^assist 
in this drive, 'the committee plans 
to have a "college day" in the 
churches. In the morning service, 
someone representing the college 
will give a gospel message and 
then present George Fox college in 
the evening service. It is their 
plan that a local committee to 
further this drive will be organiz- 
ed in each church. 

Mr. Lee reports that they are 
encouraged with the response to 
their efforts thus far. 

Budget for 1950-51 

The 1950-51 budget is set for 
$90,243. Broken down, the budget 
includes $11,720 to be used for 
maintenance, janitors, and sup- 
plies. Amortization interest and 
student aid will use $13,123. The 
administrative, promotional, and 
office fund is set at $18,050, while 
$47,350 will be used in instruction 
and education. 

The expected income should 
equal the budget. However, $11,- 
000 is still needed. The living en- 
dowment will supply $14,000 while 
the other endowment fund carries 
$23,615. Auxiliary enterprises and 
general affairs offer $11,300. The 
biggest share of the income is sup- 
plied by the tuition which will be 

In 1946 the surveyors for the 
accrediting association suggested 
nine steps for GFC to take to- 
wards accreditation. Those sug- 
gested were: improvement of lib- 
rary, modernization of administra- 
tive records, organization of ad- 
ministrative personnel, faculty 
study of school needs, outstanding 
in some field, curriculum reorgan- 
ization, better prepared faculty, 
higher salaries, and better fi- 

Eight Steps Taken 
Eight steps have thus far been 
approved upon. Only the last one 
remains untouched. It is the feel- 
ing of the college administrators 

Schools, Emergency 
Discussed at Reed 

By Marjorie Lar ranee 
Dr. Paul Parker, Dean McNich- 
ols, Professor- Kenny, Professer 
Jordan and Jo Hendricks repre- 
sented George Fox college during 
the two day Pacific Northwest 
conference on Higher Education at' 
Reed college December 18 and 19. 

Dr. E. H. Hopkins, vice-presi- 
dent of Washington State college, 
addressed the conference on the 
subject "The Emergency and the 
Colleges." He emphasized higher 
education's role in the national 
crisis. Some problems facing the 
colleges will be the decrease of 
the teaching staff and enrollment 
and adjusting the curricula to meet 
the present world situation. 

"In the face of this situation," 
says Dr. Hopkins, "the colleges 
and universities have a genuine 
responsibility, and, in fact, an op- 
portunity. It is a time when stu- 
dents need more help, more coun- 
seling, and more guidance than 
ever before. We must help them 
gain perspective, and to see the 
total situation from the long- 
range point of view. We must 
help them look ahead far enough 
to see through, or see over, the 
current maze of psychological bar- 
(Continued on Page 3 Col. 1) 

that if the "better finances" step 
were cleared, the accrediting asso- 
ciation would approve the work 
which has been done on the other. 

The following paragraphs are 
reprinted from the pamphlet re- 
cently printed for the drive. 

Various and ingenious are the 
methods of financing employed by 
colleges and universities of this 
nation. However, underlying all 
the five fundamental sources of 
income. Some institutions rely on 
all of these sources, and some on 
only one or .two. Tuition from stu- 
dents is one source of income, but 
total dependence upon this is dan- 
gerous because a major drop in en- 
rollment will greatly reduce in- 
come. Permanent endowment fur- 
nishes a common and fairly stable 
form of income. This consists of 
gifts of money which must be in- 
vested and from which only the 
income may be used to operate the 

Sources of Income 
A limited number of colleges op- 
erate rather extensive business en- 
terprises which net an income to 
the college. Still another source 
of income lies in subsides and gifts. 
State-supported institutions and 
church schools which are definitely 
in the budget of the denomination 
fall in this class. A fifth source 
of support is living endowment. 
This is composed of a definite an- 
nual sum pledged by a number of 
individuals. Thus the college re- 
ceives an income equivalent to the 
interest earned had many times as 

News Flashes 

In the interest of George Fox 
college, President Paul Parker is 
making a speaking tour of south- 
ern California. 

Dr. Parker left the college Jan- 
uary 4 at the invitation of Dr. 
Donald Spitler, general superinten- 
dent of California yearly meeting, 
and was scheduled to speak in the 
Friends churches at Bell, San Die- 
go and other churcres of the Im- 
perial valley during his three 
weeks trip.

George Fox college derives most 
of its income from tuition, per- 
manent endowment and living en- 
dowment. However, the present 
budget is insufficient for operation 
and the college is seeking to build 
the living endowment to at least 
$25,000 and at the same time re- 
duce the debt which will divert an 
increasing amount of the income 
to the operating expenses of the 

An annual income of $25,000 is 
equivalent to the income from 
$625,000 invested at four per cent. 
Few can give thousands of dol- 
lars, but many can contribute an- 
nually $100, $50, or $25. $100 per 
year means as much to the college 
as if the donor had given $2,500 
to be invested at four per cent. 
With a living endowment of $25,- 
000 added to the income from the 
permant endowment, the total 
would be equivalent to an income 
from nearly $1,000,000. It might 
be impossible to raise the perman- 
ent endowment to $1,000,000, but 
all can have a part and make pos- 
sible a living endowment of $25,-

Catalog for 1951 
To Include Shifts 
In Requirements - 

The 1950-51 edition of the 
George Fox college catalog will in- 
clude announcements of numerous 
changes in curriculum structure, 
as well as graduation require- 
ments, reports Dean Donald Mc- 
Nichols this week. 

Courses Re-numbered 
The course numbering system 
currently used by the college di- 
vides courses into two groups, 
those numbered from 1-99 being 
lower division, while the courses 
numbered above 100 are upper 
division. Courses are now to be 
numbered after the 1, 2, 3, 4 pat- 
tern, freshman courses being 1; 
sophomore courses, 2; etc. This 
system, the Dean feels, will classi- 
fy courses according to difficulty. 

Courses within a department 
have almost wholly been set up on 
a two-year rotation plan, with all 
courses being planned two aca- 
demic years in advance. This plan 
will allow the student, with the aid 
of his adviser to schedule at the 
beginning of his freshman year all 
the courses to be taken during his 
entire college career. . These plan- 
ned schedules will be recorded on 
adviser cards, newly designed by 
the dean, and then filed. By re- 
ferring to these schedules, an ad- 
viser or student can recall at a 
glance all the courses taken by 
the student, as well as those need- 
ed for the completion of his course 
of study. 

A system such as this is expect- 
ed to alleviate much of the con- 
fusion experienced by the student 
in choosing courses during regis- 
tration days. 

Requirements Shifted 
Heretofore, it has been required 
of an applicant for an AB de- 
gree to present 24 work units in 
a major field, with twelve of these 
units being upper division work. 
Upon the issuance of the new cat- 
alog, it will be required that 18 of 
these 24 units be upper division 
work, some courses of which will 
be specified. 

"With these changes, our re- 
quirements are brought up to state 
university standards, and suffi- 
cient courses are offered in the 
two-year rotation plan to give stu- 
dents proper coverage," concluded 
Dean McNichols. 

The faculty committee on col- 
lege catalog is bringing its work 
to conclusion, it was reporte.d with 
publication occurring early in the 

Faculty Announces Curriculum Changes, 
Additions for Second Semester Classes 

Several different courses will be 
offered to George Fox ' students 
during the second semester. Many 
of the departments are enlarging 
or changing their curriculum. 

Among the additions are four 
courses in the education and psy- 
chology department Professor 
Paul Neely will teach mental hy- 
giene, principles of secondary 
teaching, and Oregon school law, 
two hour, upper division courses, 
and abnormal psychology, a three 
hour upper division course. 

In Professor Floyd Riley's speech 
and dramatics department, the 
second semester courses offered 
are oral Interpretation, history of 
American oratory, Bible drama, 
and psychology of speech, all two 
hour, upper division courses. 

In the English and literature de- 
partment, Dean Don McNichols 
will offer courses in Tennyson and 
Browning, and the American sec- 

tion of Twentieth Century Poetry. 
They are both upper division, three 
hour courses. 

A lower division, three hour 
course in social problems will re- 
place introductory sociology in the 
sciology department, headed by 
Prof. Robert Jordan. Another ad- 
dition will be rural sociology, a two 
hour, upper division course. 

The new courses will be given in 
the history department under 
Prof. Mackey Hill. History of 
Russia, and history of the United 
States foreign affairs will both 
be three hour, upper division 

A lower division class to be of- 
fered in the commercial depart- 
ment is typing I. The sclass, to be 
taught by Mrs. Lydia McNichols, 
will meet five hours a week, giv- 
ing two hours credit.

Forget Your Errors . 

"I'm pressing on the upward- 
ward way, 

New heights I'm gaining 
every day. 

Still praying as I'm onward 

Lord, plant my feet on higher 

It is our privilege, as Chris- 
tians, to forget the mistakes 
we made last year and to de- 
termine that with God's help 
we'll profit by those errors 
and gain higher ground this 

The world is constantly 
seeking for greater things — 
new discoveries, more wealth, 
more possessions. How much 
more should God's people 
climb the heights with Christ. 

When climbing to the 
heights of Mt. Hood or a simi- 
lar peak, mountain climbers 
do not stop on their climb, for 

. . Press On 

they would perhaps loose the 
ground they'd gained. They 
keep pressing on until they 
have reached their goal. 

Christians may be compar- 
ed to mountain climbers. We 
cannot stop in our climb lest 
we slip back and fall along the 
path. With God's help and 
guidance we can climb and 
He will "plant" our feet on 
higher ground. 

In 1951 we can forget those 
things we left behind in 1950 
and reach for a higher plane. 

" . . . . forgetting those 
things which are behind, and 
reaching forth unto those 
things which are before, I 
press toward the mark for the 
prize of the high calling of 
God in Christ Jesus." Philip- 
pians 3:13-14. Is this your 
plan for 1951?

1900-1951 . . . Great 

December 31, 1950, marked 
the end of the first half of 
the twentieth century. 

These fifty years have 
been the greatest years the 
world has ever known, as far 
as material things are con- 
cerned. More world-stirring 
newspaper headlines have 
been set by linotype during 
these fifty years than in any 
previous fifty-year period. 
""Two world-wars have oc- 
curred, bringing with them all 
of 4he destruction and heart- 
ache that followed in the wake

stories appearing in front 
pages of newspapers all over 
America between 1900 and 

We ask "What will the next 
fifty years bring? No one 
knows the answer to that 
question. As Christians, our 
prayer for the next years 
should be that of the song 
writer — 

"To serve the present age, 

My calling to fulfill; 

O may it all my pow'rs en- 

To do my Master's will." 

May God help us that no 
matter what shaking head- 
lines we may read in our 
newspaper tomorrow, next 
week, or twenty years from 
now, that our main desire in 
life will still be to do our Mas- 
ter's will in helping the pres- 
ent age.

The caterpillar of a moth be- 
comes the color of the leaf upon 
which is feeds. Its color, in this 
way, indicates the character of the 
food upon which it lives. 

If we, as Christians, would be 
like Christ, we must feed upon 
Him. Our moral character will al- 
ways show the color of our men- 
tal and spiritual food. 

Christ lived upon the Word of 
God, His Father, and so lived a 
life that was like God. If we would 
be His disciples, "Heirs and joint 
heirs with Christ", we must come 
after Him in the same manner. 
"Man shall not live by bread alone, 
but every word that proceedeth 
out of the mouth of God." If we 
are not now experiencing it, let us 
learn, to feast upon the riches of 
the Word of God. It says in the 
Song of Solomon, 5:1 "... Eat O 
Friends ..." 

Metro Basketball 
League Organized 
For Competition 

What is the Metropolitan Bas- 
ketball league? 

Two years ago in the fall of 1948 
the coaches of five of the Portland 
area small schools, including Coach 
Bales of George Fox college, decid- 
ed that basketball would be more 
interesting, competitive, and easfer 
to schedule games if it was organ- 
ized. Consequently the Metropol- 
itan league was formed. 

The original five were Reed, U. 
of O. Dental School, Multnomah, 
Western States and George Fox. 
These remained as such until this 

Our Dog George, 
Fox Terrier, He Is 

His name is George ... a mutt 
without a home. 

It was a long, cold night, but at 
last the rain slackened and the 
gray semblance of dawn appeared. 
George padded along the road 
keeping clear of the roaring 
Orucks. He favored the front, left 
leg slightly and paused to look 
neither left nor right but continued 
straight ahead. Only a troubled 
twitch of his nose and the fact 
that his ears were at half mast 
showed that he was a stray dog. 
"If you don't get that hound out 
of the house I'll kill him- " ,the 
surly man growled as he sent the 
puppy hurtling across the floor. A 
sickening thud and a small boy 
sobbing were the only sounds that 
filled the farmhouse kitchen. Two 
blight nervous eyes shone" from 
beneath 'the stove as pup shivered. 
Oh. times were not always like 
this; itf^was only when Boy's dad 
was in one of his "MoSds" that Jie 
lashed out at the bewildered little 
animal- but that had been before 
Boy left. 

Now the school bus didn't stop 
anymore . . . Boy hadn't ever re- 
turned after his parent's made a 
hurried trip with the car with him 
all wrapped in a blanket. George 
missed the master that had lain 
with arms flung out around him 
in sleep. He missed the soft face 
that smelled of cookies and other 
wonders. . . . the dirty stubby 
hands that had pulled at his coat. 

Boy's father loked lonesome so 
George brought him Boy's ball — 

The next thing the terrier re- 
membered was the cold wet grass 
under his nose and a sharp Rain 
in his side as he pulled himself to 
his faet. 

There are many strays. "Some- 
thing ought to be done," an indig- 
nent citizen says, "Ought to shoot 
all these nuisances" . . . His boy 
sits playing with the poodle Poo- 
bah on the thick carpet. 

George, yips excitedly at a small 
figure across the street and then 
whimpers and droops his head. 
George, the mutt without a 
home ... or is he? 

season when Western States drop- 
ped out and U. of O. Medical 
School and Concordia Junior col- 
lege were added, making a six 
team league. 

The league is informally organ- 
ized with no eligibility rules. The 
coaches hold a conference about 
twice a year to discuss plans and 
schedules. So far it has worked 

Western States school won the 
championship in the initial season. 
And last year it was Reed who 
grabbed the laurels. Who it will 
be this year is still anyone's guess. 

Storms Come, But Christians Claim 
Reassurance From Promised Rainbow 

The sky is dark with huge 
clouds, and the sun is completely 
hidden from view. A cool wind is 
gently blowing the tops of the 
trees and fanning the first few 
drops of rain as t'hey fall. Now 
and then a clap of thunder shakes 
the sky. Tes, the weather indi- 
cates that a storm is on the way. 
Anyone observing the weather 
conditions would be sure of the ap- 
proaching storm. They would be- 
gin making the necessary prepara- 
tions for the rain for they know 
what is coming and what to do. 
But they also have the faith that 
the storm will end, that soon the 
first returning jays of the sun 
will peep through and perhaps a 
brilliant rainbow will be seen. As 
the clouds part and reveal the 
sparkling hues of the rainbow, one 
can observe and remember the very 
first rainbow — a promise from 
God. They too can take the storms 
of life and prepare for them when 
they see them coming, for they 
know that there'll be a rainbow 
and the sun will shine again. 

The world conditions are dark 
today. There is no doubt that one 
can hear the thunder of selfish- 
ness and sin; can see the clouds of 
hate and evil, and the rain of war 
and fighting. But to the Chris- 

tians, to those people that know 
how to prepare for the storms of 
life, there is reassurance that the 
sun wiy shine again, and there'll 
be 1 a rainbow — the same promise 
from God. That rainbow may 
come wrth the return of Christ, 
but however it comes, the children 
of God know that the brilliance 
and inspiration of that first rain 
bow has not faded nor lost its 
value. It is still shining and will 
be seen again. Perhaps you can 
see it now; perhaps it has been 
your promise for this day. Its in- 
spirations and truth from God give 
you the faith for this time and 
generation. It's a wonderful rain- 
bow after the rain, isn't it? God's 
rainbow — whether it be in the sky 
after the rain or in your heart. 

Gymnasium First to Feel 
Eeat From New Boiler 

The new boiler, purchased last 
fall, is almost ready for use, Roy 
Knight announced recently. 

First to receive steam heat from 
the new boiler will be the gymnas- 
ium. On Friday, January 5, the 
heat will be turned into the gym 
for a trial period. 

The science hall will be ready 
to heat in a few days as the regis- 
ters are already in the building. 

As I was going through my mail 
and usual assortment of threaten- 
ing letters, which I receive every 
week, I came across a list of New 
Year's revolutions. (Speaking of 
revolutions— what's going on in- 
side Hoover hall? Time will tell!) 

— Lucy Clark resolves to stay 
home on Sundays and take care of 
her dorm instead of being away 
so much. 

— John— "Lover Boy" — Wood re- 
solves to find out who is sending 
him all those proposals of mar- 

— Wilma Harris resolves to take 
every test as her teachers an- 
nounce rather than try to tsilk 
them into postponing them every- 

- Marvin Baker is going to find 
out who besides Gene Comiort and 
"Punchy" Livingstone is making 
all the noise in the dorm. 

— Betty May Street resolves to 
start hunting for a new dope ool- 
um writer. (Whoops! Looks like 
I'm out of a job!) 

Tickets are on sale now at Bee- 
be's gymnasium for the rematch of 
Slugging Stanfield and Pugilistic 
Puckett. Don't miss this fight of 
the century.

The post- Christmas parade this 
year has been most interesting to 
watch. Personally my eyes hurt 
from focussing on so many loud 
colored sox, ties, sweaters, caps, 
etc. But then my taste has always 
been too conservative, I. know. And. 
speaking of taste — I'm hungry. 

Bethlin and Louise are rushing 
around trying to get last-minute 
pointers on how to cook. I under- 
stand they both enrolled in Betty 
Crocker's new correspondence 
course entitled "How to Cook in 
Ten Easy Lessons". The course 
includes complete instructions on 
the preparation of lood, the serv- 
ing of the meal, and also a sug- 
gested medical advice for the up- 
set stomach.

Campus Clubs 


"To promote welghtlifting, body 
building and gymnastics at GFC' 
is the purpose of the recently or 
ganizer weighlifting club, accord- 
ing to the constitution. A great 
deal of interest is being shown in 
this newly formed campus organ- 
ization, states George Bales, or- 
ganizer of the club. The officers 
were chosen recently with the 
strongest member, in relation to 
weight, becoming president and so 
on down. Members are required to 
work out two days a week and at- 
tend at least one meeting a month. 

GF Club 

The members met Tuesday, Jan- 
uary B. This meeting was a wel- 
come for the new members. 
Treflan Literary Society 

Chapel on Friday, January 5, 
was sponsored by the Trefian Lit- 
erary society. The importance of 
manners in college education and 
life wese emphasized in the form 
of a radio program dramatized. 


A talk was given Dec. 19, by 
Rev. Carl Byrd, pastor of New- 
berg Friends church. In giving ad- 
vice and instruction to SMA mem- 
bers, he used examples of his own 
experiences in the ministry. He 
used the example of a pastor in 
comparison to a shephard caring 
for his flock. 

Joseph Reece, Oregon Yearly 
Meeting superintendent will be the 
next speaker. 


Thursday, February 1, has been 
set as the date for the annual ban- 
quet. The girls will have 'the priv- 
ilege, acording to tradition, to se- 
lect their own escorts. 


The Chess club members meet 
each Thursday at 7:00 p. m. in the 
science hall. The •purpose is a time 
of enjoyment in playing games. 
All are welcome to attend.

Reed Discussion 
Gives Alternatives 

(Continued from "Page 1, Col. 2) 
riers — mixed with emotion and un- 
certainty. If they are able to do 
this, in all probability most of 
them will conclude that the more 
education they can obtain, the 
batter they will be able to serve 
their country — and, at the same 
time, serve themselves." 

Several alternatives were pre- 
sented which woiild cope with the 
current situation: (1) Early ad- 
mission of high school students In- 
to institutions of higher educa- 
tion; (2) The four-quarter pro- 
gram; (3) The three-semester "pro- 
gram; (4) Two semesters plus a 
summer session; and (5) Inten- 
sification of present programs." 

The possibility of presenting 
some satisfactory plan to the fed- 
eral government where-by men of, 
draft age could do school work 
while receiving military training, 
was considered. 

Concerning the changing of col- 
lege curriculum, Dr. Hopkins said, 
"For most institutions, this Is a 
new approach to curriculum con- 
struction, but if we are to preserve 
the continuing essentials in higher 
education, and if we are to dis- 
cover the new essentials, whatever 
they may be, and eliminate the 
non-essentials, whatever they! too, 
may be, I know of no way by 
which this can be done without 
weighing each and every course,, 
and the content of each and. every' 
course, against the established cri- 
teria which should be stated In ex- 
plicit terms of institutional objec- 

Dr. 'Hopkins concluded his ad- 
dress by saying, "I can think of "no 
other professional group or organ- 
ized force, other than the military 
organization itself, that has any 
greater responsibilities or oppor- 
tunities than the collective forces 
of American education. It will not 
be easy, but the job must be done." 

Uncle Dudley Hears of Bruin Jr. Scuffle; 
Local Musicians Annoy Nephew Schizo 

Dear Uncle Dudley: 

With great pleasure I write you 
again after a long week of vaca- 
tion. My reading glasses are 
rather worn from so much reading 
of collateral and my typewriter 
has not. yet cooled off after the 
masses of papers that I had to 

I hope you can read this above 
all of this noise; it seems that this 
time of the night Is the hour for 
the local "musicians" to play the 
"Big Foot Polka" on the stairs and 
up and down the halls. The 'Door 
Slam Prelude" is not as bad but 
I hate the solos of those unfortun- 
ates who get caught in the door 

Some time ago I had the 
privilege . of seeing a rather 
interesting sight. After . see- 
ing a large group of stu- 
dents standing on the lawn In a 
circle anS aftar hurrying t« the 
group in order to ascertain the 
cause of the gatherings, I perceiv- 
ed in their midst a ball of closely 
grouped boys. Naturally thinking 
that this was a football igame I 
waited for the huddle to break. 
They didn't separate for quite some 
time and as they rolled on the 
ground small spurts of sawdust 

Student Campaign 
To Assist College 

"Get-a-Student" project, an all- 
out campaign to bring more stu- 
dents to GFC, was initiated In a 
recent chapel program. 

The student body, GFC's best 
publicity agent, joins administra- 
tion and faculty in an effort to be 
made by each individual student 
to get as many new students a3 

To grow in numbers" as well as 
financial and spiritual aspects 
is an advantage to GFC. Opera- 
tion of the school plant would be 
cheaper and economy greater, 
suggested President tPaul E. Park- 

"Tangible signs of an increased 
interest in George- Fox college are 
visible far and near," Dr. Parker 
announced. He added that stu- 
dents are enthusiastic over making 
the plan one of the most success- 
ful ventures GFC has known. 

Statistics show that GFC next 
sernester will be 30 per cent above 
the national average in enroll- 
ment as compared with last year's 
total for each college. Another 
encouraging sign is that there are 
already more prospective students 
lis'ted for the next school year 
than there were last year at this 
time. New students are also send- 
ing money for room reservations 
for next fall. 

would come ■from the pile accom- 
panied by grunts ana groans while 
now and then some one would sail 
into the air and land battered and 
beaten several feet from the melee. 
Suddenly the sound of something 
tearing came -from the pile and as 
if that was a signal, they separ- 
ated amidst a cloud of mud and 
sawdust and ran madly in several 
directions. Fearing that they had 
torn the head from some senior, 
I asked another bystander what 
the event was and he said, "Oh 
boy! another Bruin Junior fight", 
and with these words of wisdom he 
slowly sank to the ground. As I 
j stood looking at his mangled body, 
I thought that I would be sure to 
take part in the next great event 
to round out my education. 

I must close now to study for 
my I. Q. test.

Sports Editor 


. . . With Bob 

From the first games, it looks 
like the current Metropolitan 
league could develop into a blazing 
contest. It's early to draw any 
conclusions, but 
at this stage we 
would dare any- 
one to pick the 
winner. Some of 
the quints still 
remain rather a 
mystery as to 
their potential- 
ities, but from 
the scores, some 
appear to have 
had a pushover. 

The Quakers had anything but, 
if it hadn't been that the Medics 
tried to run with the fast-break- 
ing Salesmen in the final period, 
the taller Docs could possibly have 
changed the score. 

Concordia ran up a lopsided 46- 
29 victory over Multnomah. How- 
ever it was only in the second 
half in which they really pulled 
away from the Eusinessmen. Be- 
ing the new member of the league, 
not so much is known about the 
Concordia quint which makes 
them the team to watch during 
these opening stages. 

As they are also patrons of the 
fast break system, it should be 
quite a game when they meet the 
Quakers on February 8. 

It seems it was aimost a neces- 
sity to have GFC students officiate 
the first league game. The game 
originally scheduled for Saturday 
with league referees in Portland 
was changed at the last minute, 
leaving Coach Bales with no offi- 
cials. However, even with the 
scorching finish, the visiting 
Medics had no complaint with the 
whistle-tooting of Mr.'s Ralph Bee- 
be and Jim Higgins. 

Friday night is THju game. The 
Quakers play host to the Griffins 
from Reed. What a game that 
should be. It was the Portland out- 
fit that captured the Metropolitan 
league championship away from 
GFC in the finale last year. Reed 
also stopped their highly publiciz- 
ed football losing streak at the 
expense of the Quaker eleven. 
Consequently, the GFC squad wiU 
be out to dump the table on the 
Reedstcrs with everything they've 
got Friday night. The Griffins 
dropped their first game to the 
Oregon Medics, 60-48, 

Reed Champions 
Scheduled to Play 
Blue-Gold Quintet 

On Friday, January 12, the 
George Fox college Quakers play 
host to the Reed college Griffins 
from Portland. The Griffins are 
defending champions of the Metro- 
politan conference, having defeat- 
ed the Quakers last year in the 
championship tilt on the Portland- 
er's home floor. In their initial 
conference games of the season, 
the Griffins lost to the University 
of Oregon Medical School by a 
60-48 count, while the Balesmen 
edged out the University of Ore- 
gon Medical School, 48-46. 

The Newberg Merchants invade 
Hester Memorial gym January 13, 
and they will be trying for their 
second triumph over the Quakers. 
The Merchants are the only vic- 
tors over the George Fox cagers, 
having defeated them earlier in 
the season 62-55. The Newberg 
Merchants are lead by Ole John- 
son who poured 21 tallies through 
the hoop in the last encounter with 
the Balesmen. 

The night of January 19, finds 
the Quakers playing Theta Chi 
fraternity from Linfield in a re- 
turn engagement on the local floor. 
In their previous meeting, the 
George Fox cagers trimmed the 
fraternity in an overtime period 
by a 36-34 score. 

The Balesmen play their first 
game away from home on Janu- 
ary 20 against Multnomah coUege 
in Portland. The Quakers failed to 
win away from home last year, 
but they will by out to end that 
jinx in this tilt. 

Ten Biggest Sports Events of 1950' 
Feature Surprises for Fans, Players 

By Ralph Beebe 
Nineteen-fifty was a year of 
real surprises in the sports world. 
The "big boys" really took a beat- 
ing, as did those who make pre- 
dictions. Even George Fox college 
was the victim of a major football 
upset, losing to Reed on October 
21 by a 13-7 margin. It was the 
Griffin's first win in 18 games. 

In view of so many upsets and 
other outstanding sports events, 
we have endeavored to list the 
"ten biggest sports events of 195J)." 

Connie Mack, baseball's "grand 
old man," has retired from the ac- 
tive managerial post of the Phila- 
delphia Athletics. When this was 
announced on October 18, the 
sports world recognized the end 
of an era. Connie, born Cornelius 
McGillicuddy, had for 50 years 
managed the A's, winning nine 
pennants and five world champion- 
ships. He began in 1901, the year 
the American league was found- 
ed, and, like grandfather's clock, 
it seemed that he and baseball 
were inseparable, and would die 
together. But Connie, who re- 
peatedly said he wanted "just one 
more pennant," was doomed to be 
treated very harshly by a cruel 
public, and so it was that his re- 
tirement came, only a few weeks 
before his 88th birthday. 

Second on our list of important 
sports events is the defeat of Army 
on December 2. The over confi- 
dent Cadets, unbeaten since 1947, 
met Navy in their final game of 
the season, but were fired up for 
the game. From the opening kick- 
off, the Middies dominated play, 
and when it was over, the world 
was shocked as the score was an- 
nounced: Navy 14, Army 2. 

On December 11, at the annual 
mid-winter meeting of baseball 
owners, A. B. (Happy) Chandler 

Balesmen Operate 
On Medicine Men 

With only three seconds remain- 
ing, Nigel Shockey sent a ten- 
foot running shot through the net- 
ting to give GFC a 48-46 win over 
Oregon Medical School in the con- 
ference opener Friday. 

The doctors led most of the way, 
being ahead 8-0 after five minutes, 
and 24-16 at halftime. Once the 
Quakers pulled into a 13-11 lead, 
and late in the final half they once 
more fought ahead, 39-36, their 
longest lead of the night.

failed to receive the required 12 
of 16 votes to retain him as Base- 
ball Commissioner. Happy wasn't 
so happy, and protested vigor- 
ously, declaring that he wouldn't 
let the remainder of his contract 
be bought up, but that he would 
remain in office "until the last sec- 
ond of my contract," which expires 
at midnight, May 31, 1952. 

In fourth place we placed the 
Philadephia Phillies win of the 
National league. After a 35 year 
pennant famine, the perennial cel- 
lar-dwellers led nearly all the year 
and finally staggered home with 
a ten inning, 4-1, victory over the 
Brooklyn Dodgers on October 1, 
the final day of the season. The 
tired and weary "whiz kids" went 
on to drop the world series in 
four games, the first three by one- 
run margins. Eddie Sawyer was 
later voted "manager of the year," 

Joe Louis, world's heavyweight 
boxing champion since 1937, lost 
a 15 round decision to Ezzard 
Charles on September 27. The 
Brown Bomber just isn't what he 
used to be. 

On January 31, an 18 year old 
high school pitcher from Los An- 
geles, Paul Pettit, was paid a 
$100,000 bonus for signing a con- 
tract with the Pittsburg Pirates. 
Under the bonus rule, Petitt would 
have had to go to the majors af- 
ter only one year's schooling with 
the Pirate's New Orleans farm 
club. However, this rule was re- 
pealed at the mid-winter meeting 
of the Baseball Owners. 

Purdue's 28-14 win over Notre 
Dame on October 14 takes seventh 
place on our list. The Irish hadn't 
been defeated for 39 games. 

The National league finally beat 
the American in an all-star game. 
The senior circuit hadn't been able 
to turn the trick since 1944, but 
on July 11, a ninth inning home 
run by Pittsburg outfielder Ralph 
Kiner tied the score, and in £he 
fourteenth inning Red Shoen- 
(iienst, St. Louis second baseman, 
hit a four master to give the Na- 
tionals a 4-3 victory. 

California, seeking to save the 
honor of the Pacific Coast confer- 
ence, fought hard in the Rose Bowl 
game with Ohio State, but was de- 
feated by a last minute field goal, 
17-14. It marked the fourth 
straight January 1st that the far 
Westernerns had been beaten by 
Big Nine teams. 

In tenth place we placed CCNY's 
sweep of college basketball hon- 
ors. On March 18, the New York- 
ers beat Bradley 69-61 to win the 
National Invitational tourney. 
They made it a complete sweep on 
March 28, defeating Bradley again, 
71-68, in the championship game 
of the NCAA tournament.
